i found out about Carles Benavent a few months ago and recently bought his album "Quartet". i've begun to realize that his brilliance as a bass player surpasses nearly anyone else i've heard, rivaling even jaco. and i'm still a new fan! i'm serious, if you're not already familiar with this guy you have to check him out. his style is incredibly expressive and technically stunning, with a very unique Spanish flair that really jumps out and grabs you. i'd say this album Quartet is a great place to start - very accessible, mostly instrumental, excellent songs. anyway i just had to share that with you all!
